Dining and Culture together: what a concept!

I was at school today and saw a flyer for a special rijsttafel (rice table) happening at an Indonesian restaurant that I have been wanting to go to for a while now. It's $25 per person and there are only 25 spots in total, so I am going to post this for 8 and I'll try to reserve as many places as I can. No promises, so I ask people to be flexible if there aren't enough spots to go around. We can always schedule a return trip. There is supposed to be live entertainment, so that should get us a few points on the culture scale too. I will post the menu for the rijsttafel when I have a chance to scan it in, but the Web page gives you a good idea of what the menu is like.
Yelp reviews
Home page In advance I will warn people that the reviews say the service is slow, so if you're persnickety about those sort of things, you might want to wait for another Meetup.
UPDATE: I am proposing the following date and we are doing a joint Meetup with Yumi's">Yumi's group (link will be forthcoming). We have 13 spots and she has 12, so we should be good to go. A few things to keep in mind: 1. I have asked the restaurant for the date but they still have to confirm. So it may move around a bit if they have issues. 2. No alcohol at the Meetup. Or hosts follow Islam so please let's be respectful. I'll buy a round at the after-party if it comes to that. More updates to come and I'll post the menu tomorrow! As promised, the menu from the last event is now available:Here it is. MORE UPDATES: We are confirmed for March 26th and the restaurant has agreed to provide entertainment. The total price is $30.00 per person, but I'm not going to change our fees at this point, we'll just take care of any additional cash needed at the dinner. See you there! EVEN MORE UPDATES: Yumi has graciously called the restaurant and confirmed that the $30 charge covers dinner, tax, and entertainment, but not the tip. So plan on bringing a little extra money to dinner with you for that. Also, for the boozehounds in the crew, they are now fully BYOB with no corkage, so feel free to being wine or beer and you won't have to go into the alley or restroom to consume it. biggrin

    Don't forget to thank Yumi too, but it was a really great event. Food was amazing, entertainment interesting, and the people nice as always.
